Document Description
The Applicant requests a Coastal Planned Development (PD) Permit to construct the following: a 27-foot-high, 10,069-square-foot (sq. ft.) two-story single-family dwelling with an attached 869 sq. ft. two-car garage, 517 sq. ft. open roof deck, 700 sq. ft. detached pool house, 790 sq. ft. swimming pool and spa, two detached open gazebos (400 sq. ft. and 225 sq. ft.), and an open viewing platform with trellis. An existing private water well State Well Number (SWN) 01S20W15C04S will continue to provide water for the site, and four new 4,999-gallon water storage tanks will provide water for fire suppression. Two proposed septic tanks (2,000-gallons and 1,000-gallons) will handle domestic waste water for the main dwelling and the pool house. Access to the site will be provided by an existing 15-foot-wide, 980-foot-long paved . driveway extending from Cotharin Road. The proposed project also includes a temporary construction trailer, equipment storage containers, drainage improvements, landscaping, hardscape surfaces, one fire hydrant, and one draft hydrant, in accordance with Ventura County Fire Protection District requirements. The proposed project will be sited within the same general footprint as the previously-approved PD-1959 and will not create any new potentially significant environmental impacts. No grading or vegetation removal is proposed. The proposed project includes approximately 1.31 acres of vegetative restoration to abate Code Violation Case No. ZV01-0088 for unauthorized vegetation removal of Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Area (ESHA) associated with a former vineyard, which no longer exists on the subject property. The Woolsey Fire burned the entire project site, including the former vineyard area; however, the restoration of 1.31 acres is required to abate the violation.
